Photography ‘Walk and Talk’ sessions at Twycross Zoo this August with Gillian Day LRPS.

Gill headshotJoin our very own volunteer photographer Gillian Day LRPS here at Twycross Zoo for a photography ‘Walk and Talk’ session in August.   Gillian will be taking you around the zoo, stopping at many of our enclosures and showing you how to get the best possible photos of the animals here at Twycross. This is a must attend event for anyone who is thinking of entering our Photography Competition, or who would like to find out more about photographing animals.

Gillian has been photographing for Twycross Zoo as a volunteer since 2009, and you can spot her photographs around the zoo on signage, in the zoo guide, and in various articles relating to the Zoo.

Gillian’s images have also been short listed in competitions, and this year two of her photos will be part of an exhibition for the Falkland Islands in July at the Pall Mall Gallery in London. She is sitting on the judging panel of our photography competition along with Twycross CEO Sharon Redrobe, TV presenter Bill Oddie and others.

Photo comp SPOTTHUMBThe ‘Walk and Talk’ sessions with Gill herself will run from 10am to 12pm on the selected dates, and then attendees are free to practice on their own within the zoo in the afternoon. If you plan to attend you should arrive early and meet with Gill in our Guest Services building. The Walk and Talk will begin promptly at 10.00am.

There is a limited amount of space available for each session and places must be booked in advance with Guest Services. You cannot just turn up on the day. The cost for non-members is standard zoo entry (16.95 for adults) but this must be paid upfront when booking with Guest Services. Members can attend for free but must still ring to book a place.

In the event of bad weather the session will still go ahead but will take place inside the Himalaya Visitor Centre. There will be no refunds available in the event of bad weather. You should read your camera manual and know how the camera works before attending.
